We've done it! It is just about 3 AM in the morning
PST, the internet is not working, and I have finally finished figuring out
all the legit numbers for the recent poll between Gerard Butler and Viggo
Mortensen. In the poll we asked a simple question-- which actor is better?
Now, the votes don't just reflect acting style, but the overall character
of the actor as well. So, how did the results turn up? Check this out!
Gerard Butler vs Viggo Mortensen
Vote Viggo or Gerard: The results
At the time of writing this article we currently
have 151,028 votes registered for either Gerard Butler or Viggo Mortensen.
These numbers alone make we want to announce that both these actors are
winners in our hearts for just being able to accrue so many votes in only
a couple of days. But, knowing you die hard fans out there [ladies, you
know who I am talking about], I guess announcing that both Viggo Mortensen
and Gerard Butler were both #1 would be enough to earn me hate mail for
a couple of weeks.
So, without further ado, here are the stats from the poll between Gerard
Butler and Viggo Mortensen:
Total Votes: 151,028
Total Votes: 81,190
Unique Votes: 7,943
Total Votes: 69,838
Unique Votes: 5,082
Alright, judging by the votes alone, anybody can
tell that Gerard Butler won the contest of Best Actor thanks to the support
of his fans. However, there are a few areas here that need to be looked
at before we can announce a winner.
Fan Sites: While viewing our stats we noticed that a good
amount of Gerard Butler voters were coming from Gerard Butler fan sites.
Our stats claim that three separate websites, with the big one being GerardButler.Net,
have sent a good portion of fans to our recent debate to vote [thanks!].
Though we did also receive traffic from sites supporting Viggo, not as much
as those supporting Gerard.
Emails: To be honest, since the beginning of this poll
the emails have been spot on. Though I didn't count, I can say that the
amount of emails that we received for each actor was about the same for
both sides. The Gerard Butler fans show a lot of love and devotion to the
actor with short, but concise, emails. The Viggo Mortensen fans, on the
other hand, can write books of information on the actor and have no problem
throwing an entire essay together to send over; talk about devotion! How
many emails did we get? Well, I created the poll to cut down on emails,
but we still probably got around 150-200 while the poll was running. Luckily,
that was still a lot less than before.
So, what is the final conclusion? Who is the winner?
That's it! You've heard it here! However, I do again want to remind the
fans that it is you, not the actors, that made this poll so much fun. No
matter whom you supported, the amount of votes and emails from both sides
convinced me that these guys are the SHIT.
Films to see: Phantom of the Opera, Dear Frankie, Beowulf
& Grendel, 300 and A
